Square Foot Gardening for Beginners

Defining Basic Blogging Terms, Part 2

This week I'm continuing to define basic blogging terms. My goal is to compile a glossary of key terms that will help new bloggers navigate their way through the blogosphere. Every time I think I've defined all the basic terms, I come up with a few more that have stumped my readers in the past. You can look forward to one more week of blogging terms, then we'll start tackling social media and Twitter terms. ...more
